The LEGO Recharger: Manages Power and Keys

Docks and charging stations are necessary to keep your desk free of the usual clutter. The LEGO Recharger combines our love of LEGO bricks with the simple task of juicing up your gadgets in style.

The LEGO Recharger was designed by John Edgar Park a few years ago, as you can see from the almost vintage iPod and cell phone. Nevertheless, that doesn't make it any less cool. He got the idea from a trip to Legoland. He saw a neat LEGO rack with LEGO brick keychains. This inspired him to come up with something made out of LEGOs to hold all of the things from his pockets. In order to be effective, it would also need to be able to charge his iPod and cell phone. All that he needed was a powered LEGO brick that was attached to each device in order to provide power.

In order to complete his build, he needed to scour his LEGOs to find the right bricks. Key bricks included some 9V motor wire bricks as well as a large base plate to start putting together the Recharger. He wanted to minimize the actual modification of the bricks as well as keeping things color-coded. The charging cords will need to be modified so that a LEGO motor wire brick can be crimped to the end. For more information, check out this post.
